Calculating carbon emissions
The first step to a climate neutral product or service is to calculate carbon emissions. myclimate offers several online calculators which are accessible from the web or technically via APIs. Our calculators are used in case of complex calculations or variable products (such as driving your car a variable distance). If you fabricate a standard product or offer a standard service, we might be able to calculate fixed carbon emission per product or service unit. If you want to calculate carbon emissions of your company, please contact our consulting & services team instead.
Offsetting carbon emissions
Depending on your specific product or service, there are different strategies to offset carbon emissions. The easiest solution is to link to the myclimate web calculators. It is possible to either specify calculation parameters or directly carbon tonnes in the link. If you have a booking flow, you can integrate the carbon offsetting into your own payment process. Customers pay the carbon offset as part of your product or service and you track how many carbon tonnes have been sold in total. You regularly settle the total carbon tonnes sold with us. If your product or service has a complex carbon emission calculation or is variable, you can use our API for the calculation within your booking process. Products or services with fixed carbon emissions do not need an API. The tight integration in a booking flow is preferable, because linking to our calculators requires the customer to enter billing and payment details.
Analytics & Reporting on offsets
If you link to our calculators, we offer analytics and reporting. We can tell you how many users visited our offsetting web site and how many of them offset their carbon emissions.
